John Carter Brown Library - Bolivia Collection

Present-day Bolivia was known as Upper Peru during the colonial period. The country was named in honor of the great Liberator, Simon Bolívar, who wrote the original constitution in 1827. A press did not begin to function in Bolivia until the outbreak of the wars of independence, and its output consisted mainly of government proclamations and other official documents. The JCB holds ten works printed in Bolivia, from La Paz and Cuzco, and done between 1827 and 1838. These include a copy of the 1831 constitution that replaced constitution written by Bolivar, and the first edition of a widely popular epic poem, La Batalla de Yanacocha, from 1835.
